Not much information yet, but there has been another shooting at a church in Tennesee. What a horrible incident in what is usually a peaceful place to gather!
SOURCE ARTICLE NYTIMES


One person was killed and six others were wounded after a gunman opened fire on Sunday at a church in Antioch, Tenn., near Nashville, officials said. The police said the gunman, who shot himself, was in custody. The shooting happened at 11:15 a.m. Central time at the Burnette Chapel Church of Christ.


Hopefully they will release more information when it becomes available:

The gunman’s motive was unclear. He pulled up to the church in a blue S.U.V. and was wearing a neoprene mask similar to what a skier would wear, Mr. Aaron said.


ETA: CNN reports that the gunman accidentally shot himself - he's in custody. CNN SOURCE

One parishioner who witnessed the shooting inside the church "ran up and confronted" the gunman, Aaron said. During a struggle, the gunman mistakenly shot himself, Aaron said.

Sounds like it could have been much worse if not for that brave parishioner.

Hope the gunmans wound gives him something to think about for a long time. There is no real punishment in this life for bastards like this but the justice system should make the most severe example possible out of these senseless acts of violence.

Wishing the best for all who were involved and affected.

Not religious, but anyone who attacks a church is a gutless piece of garbage.

great conjecture... with little information you make an non-informative assumption.

Probably one of the many Tennessee Muslims out there!

Jokes aside, this is whack and almost as cowardly as shooting up a school.

Idiots.

Great joke! It's funny because of shooting and innocent Muslim fanatics. Way to go helping out during a tragedy with thoughtful words a reply to: SteamyJeans

I'm going to assume it was a white male because that usually seems to be the case with mass shootings.

White male gun owners are a danger to the world, why do we let them still buy guns?

/sarcasm

This is horrible, my thoughts are with the victims and their families.

Seems they've identified a perp, and sadly I don't think this will be helping the current race relations around this country ...

It's not racial until it's racial.

For all we know he simply hated Christians or wanted to shoot people.

Six replies in and we already have a drive-by take on bagging on 'dem Muslims.

Read the article...you're right. Even if it isn't racially motivated, you know the msm is going to spin it that way.

And the alternate-media is going to spin it to a Muslim thing.
